The Board of Trustees

It takes a village

The Co-op is governed by a Board of Trustees (BOT), a dedicated, passionate group of volunteers. All trustees are democratically elected to act on behalf of the ownership, to set strategic plans for the Co-op’s future and to ensure that the Co-op remains fiscally sound and operating within the cooperative principles. 

Co-op Principle #3:
Democratic Member Control

Cooperatives are democratic organizations controlled by their members, who actively participate in setting their policies and making decisions. Men and women serving as elected representatives are accountable to the membership. In primary cooperatives members have equal voting rights (one member, one vote) and cooperatives at other levels are organized in a democratic manner.
